School: Dos Pueblos High School
What issue area are you most passionate about? Which do you know the most about? (Immigration, environment, woman’s rights, mental health, LGBTQ rights, etc.):
As a queer young woman, I experience issues with the LGBTQ+ community and women’s rights quite regularly. Therefore, I am extremely passionate about these and righting the wrongs that are out in the world concerning these issues. I also struggle with some mental health problems, and I believe that mental health is a very important aspect of life that everyone must be educated on. I am passionate about fighting for everyone who doesn’t necessarily have a voice.
What activities do like to do regularly as a pastime?
I have quite a few hobbies that consume my free time! I am a kickboxer, as well as an avid reader and writer, actor, and musician. I try to get to kickboxing at least three to four times a week, I read and write everyday, and I also practice music and have acting rehearsal almost everyday!
What clubs/organizations/sports/job are you involved with outside of youth making change?
As I mentioned before, I am an avid kickboxer. I am also an actor, and I am on my school’s theater company’s theater advisory board where I oversee fundraising.
